None. Not one. I’ve seen time and time again that ‘fans’ will say things like “that member can’t sing so he’s worthless”, or “she sucks at dancing”, or “his rapping is awful” and I’m absolutely tired of it. So let me break it down for you.
In most groups, there’s a group leader. Typically the leader would be the eldest member of the group, but it’s not always the oldest. Suho, leader of EXO is currently the second to last oldest member. CL, was the second youngest of her group, 2NE1. Taeyeon, leader of SNSD, is the oldest. The leader is meant to be mature, and charismatic, and be able to handle focus and attention that’s on them. They’re meant to care for the other members, to motivate the group, and represent them(eg. speaking on stage). In short, they’re the parent of the group, responsible for their members.
By default, as this is Kpop, all members are dancers. But there are still roles for the groups. Again, same hierarchy;
The Main Dancer- Expected to have the best dancing skills, less focused on singing, often have fewer parts during songs, might even have only sub-vocal parts(as breathing needs to be reserved for their dancing), often have solo dance parts.
The Lead Dancer- As the whole group dances, the Lead Dancer will lead the group and often dance in the front, when the group is dancing all together.
Kpop emphasizes on beauty. There is even a position in most groups that, who ever is given the role, takes special care of their looks, because that’s an important feature for a group: looks. It’s not fan-appointed, it’s given by the company, as all roles are. It’s a real thing. The Visual is someone that is deemed most attractive, and is most likely seen endorsing products and be on commercials and ads.
Note: don’t confuse this with the ‘face’ of the group, aka the member most easily recognized. Some idols are the face and the visual(Hyuna, Taeyong) but the two are not the same.
Some positions you don’t get trained for, you’re born into them. The maknae is simply the youngest of the group. They don’t have a specific task to do, they’re just the baby of the family. But of course being the youngest is often associated with being cute, so some maknaes make a point of being the complete opposite of the Leader, the most charismatic and responsible member. They’re often ‘forced’ to do aegyo, and act cute when asked.
Considering the fact that idols aren’t just thrown out into the public, they’re put through anywhere from a year to 10 years of training, insane diets, learning choreography, songs, new languages, and often times while still juggling school, you can’t say they don’t deserve a spot in their group. Adding on to the fact a lot of times, idols actually have a hand in creating choreography, lyrics, and music, they pull their weight.
Members aren’t meant to be good at everything, that’s why there’s roles.
Some groups don’t have concrete roles, and that’s fine too.
So there you have it, your little Kpop introductory class.
Each group is carefully put together by companies. Every member has a point, if they didn’t, they’d be a waste of money and wouldn’t be in a group.
You can easily look up a groups’ roles, and see why a member is there. It’s not hard to not be ignorant about groups. Learn something from this, and keep your mouths shut.
Me7Nam(Me and seven men) is a pre-debut reality show that displays how it is being like a so called ‘fly on the wall’ around Victon. Although the concept is slightly cringey at times, it is a good way to get to know the boys:
Now onto the fun part, I will give a few points of facts and then explain their personalities briefly.
Born: December 24th 1994
Position: Leader, Rapper and Vocal
He is the younger brother of former Secret member Han Sunhwa
Seungwoo is the dad of the group, and also the rock. He is always positive and kind hearted and takes care of his members so well. He gives his all for the group (which is showed clearly on Weekly Idol) and has a very calming, but silly personality. Oh - and he works out a lot his body is great
Born: April 16th 1995
Position: Main Vocal
Seungsik is the mom of the group. He cooks and also cares for the members like Seungwoo. He might be the member that has to suffer from the pranks from the younger the most, but he never gets angry about it. He is sensitive at heart and has a brightening smile. And he also works out *cough*
Born: December 14th 1995
Position: Main dancer and vocal
He is the younger brother of Madtown’s Heo Jun
(Heo) Chan is the uncle of the group (he says so himself). He is very close to Subin and laughs a lot (the sun shines nicely when he does). He is a very good dancer as the main, but his vocals are also of high quality. He is 1/3 of the dimple line with Sejun and Byungchan and loves anything cute (Subin)
Born: May 4th 1996
Position: Main vocal, face of the group
Sejun is the first son of the group (yes, they really have a system like this). He is soft spoken and dorky, but can be reserved and quiet on certain situations (like variety shows). He is also easily flustered and loves food more than anything. Sejun has dimples deeper than the pacific ocean.
Born: September 25th 1997
Hanse is the second son of the group. He has many sides, but is all in all a softie (he’s even scared of cats how). He is very sweet, quirky and humourous and is as many rappers, very passionate about music.
Born: November 12th 1997
Position: Sub vocal and visual
Edit: He has a little role in Sassy Go Go
Byungchan is the third son of the group. He has made himself known with featuring on Variety Shows and killing the girl group dances on Weekly Idol. Byungchan speaks prettily, is reassuring and heart warming. He can also be very silly at times.
Born: April 5th 1999
Position: Sub vocal, maknae
Subin is the fourth son of the group. He is a good mix of a sweet child and a maknae on top. Everyone likes to care care of him but also use the fact that he is the youngest against him (as a joke of course). He is very close to Chan, but also Hanse, who likes to always squish his lil cheeks.
I hope you enjoyed this brief runthrough of the group. Send me any messages if you spot mistakes or if you have any questions.
Born: May 29th, 1999 // 18/19 years old // Maknae line
Astrological Zodiac Sign: Gemini
Chinese Zodiac Sign: Rabbit

Blood Type: AB
Position: Lead dancer, sub-vocals, sub-rapper #ALL ROUNDER TOO #THEY FORGOT 1/11 OF THE VISUALS
Final Rank #2
Grade: C → B

between the episodes)
HERE’S SOME MORE B/C I CANT GET ENOUGH
#KING OF CATCH PHRASES LITERALLY “Self made aegyo catchphrase "save you in my heart” “nae maeum soge jeojang” became famous
(probably forever his most iconic catchphrase) leading to companies using the
phrase for marketing purposes. Jihoon started receiving offers from companies
to become their advertisement model while the show was still being aired as
everything either worn or used by him became sold-out.” ← NOT EVEN A LIE
Jeojang ft. that weird ass neck pillow hoodie that was sold out. Cross my heart it was sold out. NOT BECAUSE I TRIED BUYING IT OKAY
Literally everyone at least knows this catch phrase
BACKSTORY so cosmic girls/wjsn is made up of four units (wonder, joy, sweet, and natural) and is the baby sister girl group to sistar and monsta x. they are WILDLY gay and chaotic (have been coined the Chaos Family by yours truly). their concept is that they are from space and thats it thats the concept so space is gay. theyve had two comebacks and had a member in ioi and a member who participated in girl spirit
myteen has A LOT of content and we have a pretty small fanbase right now, so subbing is a bit on and off. i would check out their vlives since most of the time their broadcasts and earlier myteen shows are subbed. for the more recent myteen shows, i recommendjxj subs. (keep in mind that they’re a two-person team and they do have a life, so subs cannot always be ready right away!)
vlive subbed their mini reality show, but it only has yuvin, eunsu, hanseul, and chunjin! this was before myteen was even announced. such fetuses. each episode is only 5-10 minutes long!

and that’s all the info you really need to know for myteen! hopefully there’ll be a fanbase soon to provide subs because they are literally so funny!!! there’s only a few of us, but i hope this post will help you and a lot of other people to become their fans! the boys are extremely lovable and talented and i can’t help but obsess over them.
and also @kmseul (that’s my side-blog for myteen i made a few months ago lol i am definitely going to post a lot more myteen content on that blog, esp since i miss making gifs!!) and to those who i didn’t mention, i’m sorry!
we’re finally leaving the predebut era and coming closer to debut. i hope all you lovely people will join the myteen train and support them because this is music works’ first boy group, and first group overall! our fanbase is small, but we haven’t even entered the beginning yet, so let’s do our best to make our boys have a successful debut as well as a successful route into the idol industry.
i know this wasn’t a very good guide, but i tried my best! thank you so much for following me and you have no idea how happy it makes me to see how many people are steadily becoming fans of them. i will do my part and post a lot of content of taebin!
p.s. myteen will make their debut on july 26, don’t you guys forget!
Imagine if Shakarian had happened late ME1/PostME1, how would have Garrus reacted to her death?
Garrus’ blue eyes were transfixed on the vid screen.
Breaking news. The
Alliance has just reported that Commander Shepard is formally considered killed
in action while scouting for Geth in the Attican Traverse. A memorial service
will be held tomorrow to honor the actions of the recent Savior of the Citadel…
Coffee had spilled out of his mug, scorching his hand but he
didn’t care. His mind was travelling at a million light years per minute, no Shepard couldn’t have been in the Traverse,
she could be somewhere in space, she’s a survivor…
“Vakarian!” his superior barked, “You gonna bring me that
coffee or what?”
He didn’t answer at first. The words resembled an echo, a
memory trying to bubble up to the surface. With his eyes still glued to the
screen, Garrus murmured, “I’m taking a few days off.”
“You heard me.” He snapped back into the moment like a
lightning rod, shoveing the coffee into his boss’ outstretched hand. “I have
something to take care of.”
Garrus didn’t care if he ever worked
at C-Sec ever again.
